Now a Major Motion Picture
Longlisted for the Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction
It's 1940. France has fallen, and only a narrow strip of sea lies between Great Britain and invasion. Young copywriter Catrin Cole is drafted by the Ministry of Information to "write women" into propaganda films. Their latest is a heartwarming tale of bravery at Dunkirk. And since the war has stripped the industry of its brightest and best, it's left to the utterly unsuitable to unite for King and Country.
